i am not exactly sure what Corbynism is...what do you think Corbynism is?

The uncritical belief in the Patron Saint of the Islington Allotment Society and the "positions" Labour took under his leadership - putting more credence in winning "the argument" in the Labour Party than winning elections.

Time for RLB to be referred to Disability Awareness Workshop? 

 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7962783/Rebecca-Long-Bailey-sparks-fury-describing-brain-damaged-constituent-vegetable.html

 

She can't even be bothered to apologise herself.  She has to get one of the lackey 'spokespersons' to do it for her.

If its a "Daily Fail" non story, why have plenty of other news sources run with it?

 

Your continued defence at her failings and unsuitability as leader is as sad as your previous posts defending Corbyn.

No she didnt, she called him a practical vegetable. There is no way you can say she meant to say he was in a "vegatative state". If i was the family of the person I would be offended. You can see Nandy listen and react once RLB had said it.

So she either had a script that went through numerous people (including herself) describing a person as a vegetable

or

She went off script and didn't even try to correct herself after describing someone as a vegetable.

In the link that was posted it says.....

Chloe Hayward, Executive Director of UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum said: 'We are very pleased that Rebecca Long-Bailey has been so supportive of this family, and that she is aware of the need for appropriate neurorehabilitation services and the lengths families need to go to to fight for appropriate care and support.

'It is very unfortunate that Rebecca used the phrase 'practical vegetable'.

'It is probable that the term 'vegetative state' was the one she was looking for which refers to a person who has a disorder of consciousness.' .......so I interpret that they think she got mixed up with her words..

And the fact that she failed to correct herself immediately; requires an underling to apologise on her behalf?

So who was responsible for her saying it then?

 

The scriptwriters for writing it and then her reading it without checking

or

Her for just saying it off cuff

 

either way do you think she should have made the apology, not "a spokeperson"

A bit like when she got a bit mixed up about remembering her dad's work:

Quote

‘My dad, Jimmy, worked on the Salford docks and I grew up watching him worrying when round after round of redundancies were inflicted on the docks.’

Ms Long-Bailey, 40, was born in September 1979, meaning she was two years old when the docks were closed in 1982.

 

A spokesperson said: ‘Rebecca, like many others in the north, saw first-hand the devastation created by Thatcher’s brutal economic regime.’

or working through the night:

Quote

A Labour source said: “Rebecca tells this story at every CLP or union meeting she attends, and this week, it's been promoted by Momentum, John McDonnell, Novara Media, and ‎dozens of her other supporters as evidence of her leadership skills and how good she'd be in a crisis - every one of them repeating her claim that she had to work all night to ride to the rescue the next morning.

 

"That is demonstrably a total lie, just like her claim to have been born with the sound of the Stretford End roaring in the background. If we want to regain the trust of the British people, trading in lies during the leadership campaign is not a great start."

 

A spokesman for Ms Long-Bailey confirmed her version of events was wrong, but insisted she had had to work round the clock for days in the wake of Mr Marris’s departure.

To be fair, if you get those words mixed up, then you are a bit of a liability.

 

RLB simply doesn’t have either the intellect or the people skills to lead a 21st century political party.
